“Miner” is an abstract strategy game for one to four players. The design of the game was completed in 2006 and never published. After intensive playtesting in January of 2012, we have decided to Kickstart “Miner” after “Di Renjie” and rename the game as “The Mines of the Sacred Dragons“. More information on “Miner” can be found in the Prototype section http://sunrisetornado.com/?page_id=408.
